True West

January 17 - February 16, 2020

Bagley Wright Theater

Two brothers from different walks of life – one a successful screenwriter, the other a restless drifter – clash while housesitting for their mother in a sweltering Los Angeles suburb. This outlandishly funny and unsettling Pulitzer Prize-nominated comedy by acclaimed late playwright Sam Shepard gleefully detonates our misguided myths of family, identity, and the American Dream.

A never-ending battle of sibling rivalry and identity theft
